Reaction to Rebel Wilson article in Sydney Morning Herald

The newspaper was criticized for a column complaining that Rebel Wilson revealed her new relationship after being asked to comment.

This week, Rebel Wilson introduced her new girlfriend Ramona Agrum to fans on social media. But Sydney Morning Herald the paper faced backlash after it ran a column complaining about the way it announced the relationship itself.

In May, Wilson teased that she was “happy” in the relationship, but did not reveal her partner’s identity.

She officially announced her relationship on Instagram this week: “I thought I was looking for a Disney prince… but maybe all this time I really needed a Disney princess,” the Pitch Perfect actor wrote in the caption of a selfie with Ramona .

But in the opinion article, Sydney Morning Herald Columnist Andrew Hornery wrote that he gave Rebel two days to comment on her relationship, calling it “a big mistake”.

“This media showed great caution and respect when this media outlet emailed Rebel Wilson’s representatives on Thursday morning, giving her two days to comment on her new relationship with another woman, Los Angeles-based leisurewear designer Ramona Agrumah, before than to publish even one word,” he said. wrote.

“Big mistake. Wilson chose to ignore this story by posting about her new ‘Disney Princess’ on Instagram early Friday morning, the same platform she previously used to show off her handsome ex-boyfriend, wealthy American beer baron Jacob Bush.”

Mr. Hornery added that she even had her “best friend,” actor Hugh Sheridan, who did radio interviews on Breakfast FM on Friday mornings, during which he gloated about introducing the women to each other six months ago.

“Obviously they hit it off right away, but kept the relationship under wraps,” he said.

“Given how bitterly Wilson complained about poor journalism standards when she successfully sued Women’s Day as far as slander is concerned, her choice to ignore our careful, sincere and honest questions is not impressive in our opinion.”

But social media users were quick to defend Rebel, criticizing Sydney Morning Herald a piece.

BBC reporter Megha Mohan tweeted: “I just read this @smh article 3 times to make sure I didn’t make a mistake. The publication told Rebel Wilson that they would expose her in 2 days, and now complains that she herself decided to announce her relationship with a woman. Pretty amazing.

Another woman wrote:Sydney Morning Herald Posting an insightful article about how they gave Rebel Wilson 48 hours before introducing her to the world, but *she* is a bad person using that time to get out on her own terms has me baffled. What to do, not to mention recognition, not to mention expect pity.

Another person wrote: “When I saw Sydney Morning Herald threatened to expose Rebel Wilson and then complained that she got them out.” I thought someone leaked an email or something. It never occurred to me that they would publish this account of events in print and expect everything to go well.”

Back in May, Rebel, 42, added that she had been looking for love on dating apps but ended up meeting her new soul mate through a buddy.

“I turned the Raya app on and off, but it was set up by a friend,” she said. “He’s known us both for at least five years and thought we’d get along – and we did!”

The couple have been hiding in plain sight since the senior year star actually took Agrumah as her plus-one to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in March.

The Isn’t This Romance star, who has lost a lot of weight over the past year, last dated Jacob Bush, but the couple broke up in early 2021. She was then linked with tennis player Matt Reid.

Ramona is a fashion designer and entrepreneur, and the founder of LEMON VE LIMON, an eco-friendly apparel company. She also plays the role of brand ambassador for Bee Goddess Jewelery.
